Baby Shower Menu

The hormones were raging but in a very happy way!  This past weekend was my cousin’s baby shower. I was surrounded by darling new mommies or mommies-to-be.  I felt like a droopy, un-Vogue-like mother of 3 in her 40s.  Oh wait…  I think I need some retail therapy.  David counter-suggested some gym therapy.  One of the cute shower activities was to provide Carrie with some parenting advice. One guest rightfully noted that this baby would be well-dressed, have a good hairstyle, be well organized and always on time.  My advice was “you just think you are in charge.”  Too cynical?

I know you’ve been waiting to hear what items were on the final menu.  Drum roll please.  Here is what graced the plates of her fun friends and family:

Carrie's Baby Shower Menu
  • Bubba’s chicken tenders
  • Potato Casserole – an Aunt Chris specialty - recipe below
  • Kale salad – a BIG hit!
  • Fruit Salad – assortment of strawberries, blackberries, cantaloupe, honeydew and pineapple
  • Sour Cream Biscuits – recipe below
  • Mini-cupcakes from McKinley’s in Fort Worth – strawberry and chocolate bites of deliciousness
